A gender-switch story like no other with FALSE POSITIVE starring Xian Lim & Glaiza De Castro

Thursday, May 12, 2022

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if there will be a gender role switched between a man and a woman? Let's say there will be a spell that would make Men have monthly menstrual periods and then get pregnant as well? It would've been chaos right? 

This is an extraordinary event that will definitely shock both genders since we're so accustomed to each individual's roles from the very beginning. Premiered last May 2, GMA Entertainment Group proudly presented the most explosive gender-switch on Philippine TV via ‘False Positive.’

The fantasy romcom stars the pairing of sought-after leading man Xian Lim in his first GMA primetime series and multitalented Kapuso actress Glaiza De Castro.

Xian is grateful to be given the chance to portray the unique and challenging character of Edward, “Nakakatuwa lang kasi nabigyan ako ng chance to portray ang pinagdadaanan ng isang babae. Kahit papaano, naiintindihan ko na yun, naiparamdam sa akin kumbaga, kurot pa lang yung nararamdaman sa dami na pagdadaanan. That gives me a whole level of respect for you guys. Sobrang hirap, lahat ng mothers sa set, I was asking for advice, comment and feedback para mas maging legit, and genuine yung performance kasi hinding-hindi ko mararamdaman yun or paano ba aralin yung pagbubuntis...I think a big part din is inenjoy lang namin yung proseso kung paano hanapin yung kanya-kanyang characters.”

Xian shared that he enjoyed doing the romcom project for a change because he wanted to do something light since we have experience a lot in the past two years so he felt that this is the best project that he can give to the viewers. Since it was comedy, he did his best to portray each scene that best and most natural was he can deliver and most of it he said were impromptu and made by his creative mind. Xian has been one of the lucky stars that has been busy despite the pandemic, getting projects -movies and teleseryes plus he is also busy with his YouTube Channel. He said that he just loves what he is doing, if you're passionate with your craft, it will just flow naturally even if you're busy and will continue to make time for it.

Glaiza, in turn, reveals feeling pressured channeling her role Yannie in this series, “Honestly, natakot ako. Nagtanong talaga ako kung paano ba yung comedy. Kasi nga doon sa mga eksena, hindi ko alam kung paanong approach yung gagawin ko kasi nasanay nga ako sa mga intense so, nasanay ako na inaaral ko lagi, sanay ako na by the books na verbatim ako sa script kung mag aadlib man ako, aaralin ko yan days before. Hindi ako sanay sa impromptu so natatakot talaga ako…pero nagpapasalamat ako sa tulong lang rin ng lahat. Na-fulfill ko naman kahit papaano, feeling ko naman nagawa ko naman yung dapat kong gawin. Masaya siya, na-enjoy ko talaga yung process.”

Since Glaiza recently got married, this role seems perfectly fit for her. She got married last year October 2021 to David Rainey, an Irish Business at Northern Ireland. Although she said she doesn't have plans yet of having a baby soon because she wanted to be physically, mentally and emotionally ready for it. Basing on her family and friend's advices, it felt like she will be on a marathon if she finally enters motherhood which is why she wanted to be very prepared when it the right time comes. 

Glaiza shared that working with Xian was so nice since they are very comfortable working with each other they also love working with Direk Irene. 

Also present during the Bloggers Conference were Rochelle Pangilinan as Bernice Siodra (Yannie’s best friend)Luis Hontiveros as Devon Rosales (Edward’s cousin and right hand man) and Yvette Sanchez as Pauline Dare (Edward’s sexy-tary who will do everything to level up their relationship).

Edward (Xian) and Yannie (Glaiza) are the perfect couple. Young, in love, and crazy for each other, they promised to build a life and a family that they would always put first. Not long after getting married, Yannie found out she was pregnant and the couple was overjoyed; but that joy was gradually replaced with bickering, fights, and even jealousy. Edward became too busy with his job, often leaving Yannie alone. After one major fight, Yannie cursed into the wind hoping that Edward would understand what she was going through. A playful diwata heard this, and granted her wish, a little too literally.

A roster of talented artists joins them in this ground-breaking series: Dominic Roco as Froilan Siodra, Bernice’s husband and Yannie’s OB GYNE; Buboy Villar as Malakas, Maganda’s partner; Herlene “Hipon Girl” Budol as Maganda, the playful diwata; Alma Concepcion as Marla, Edward’s mother;  Dianne dela Fuente as Maritess, a vlogger who will discover Edward’s condition.

Making the program equally exciting is the special participation of Mr. Tonton Gutierrez as Rodrigo de la Guardia, Edward’s strict father; and Ms. Nova Villa as Lola Mamerta, Yannie’s grandmother whom she is very close to.

Esteemed director Irene Villamor is at the helm of this much-awaited primetime soap.

Love, drama, heaps of laughter, and valuable life lessons await Kapuso viewers in this original drama. Join Edward and Yannie as they go through their marriage together – roles reversed, or not – in False Positive, weeknights 8:50 p.m. right after First Lady on GMA Telebabad.
